hi all

my employer recently moved to new offices and all employees were told that they would recieve their allocated work by text/e-mail and that we were not to visit the office itself at 8am every morning as we had done in the past

 

i am contracted to work 40 hrs a week on an hourly rate normally 8am-5pm mon-fri ,however recently they have been sending me work at perhaps 10 oclock in the morning ,and the job may only take a couple of hours ,

after waiting around for more work if none came i would return home and wait there ,now on recieving my monthly pay they have only paid me the hours for the time i was on the job meaning that i have waited in my house for most of the day unpaid ,and unable to plan or go anywhere incase work came through which i would be expected to attend .

 

on other occasions they would text me through an adress saying hi this is your work for today i would do the job perhaps taking only 3-4 hours , do they still have to pay me the 8 hours ?

 

on both circumstances i would very much appreciate your opinions ,thankyou

Apart from the fact that this seems just a little "off" - what does your contract say. Because it depends on that. And whether you are even an employee. None of which is clear. What do you do?

If your contract of employment states 40 hours and that has been your usual routine then they are on thin ice

 

has any explanationbeen given for this by your employer

 

setion 13 of the employment rights act is comming into play as long as you have not agreed to reduced hours

I would agree, but I would still like to know exactly what the contract says, because it is a little odd to have an hourly rate in what is effectively a full-time job, and I just worry a little that there's some wording in there that isn't quite what you think it is. I wouldn't expect a larger company o make such a glaring error as this, and I would prefer to be certain what the terms are.
